The stylish geometric Block Bowl was designed by Tom Dixon for his well-respected design brand Tom Dixon.
Tom created his company in 2002. A self-taught industrial designer with a knack for innovative furniture and lighting designs, Dixon rose to fame in the 1980s for his exceptional ability to turn recycled materials into artistic masterpieces. He is well-known for his iconic 'S' chair created for the Italian furniture giant Cappellini. His company releases new designs biannually at the most prestigious design events in Milan and London. Dixon's works are displayed in New York's Museum of Modern Art and London's Victoria and Albert Museum. He received the OBE in 2001.
The Block Bowl is part of the Block collection, a line of sculptural designs featuring cubic and cylindrical shapes. This ceramic piece is handcrafted in Portugal, a leader in earthenware. Each bowl is slip cast in stacked shapes to form different geometric forms and hand-enamelled for exceptional variation, giving each piece a unique personality. The Block Bowl measures 12 x 30 cm and weighs only 0.3 kg. This delightful piece makes a perfect addition to a home or office table.
